“I AM A LEGEND”,THIS IS ” WORLD WAR Z”AND YOU TRY TO SURVIVE
“If zombies attack the world, everyone will run and hide.Except for us gamers, of course. We’ve been waiting for this all our lives”
-Ted, computer gamer
Almost everyone loves zombie movies. It is a part of popular culture, the price of being in trend, following the mass hysteria about something which you are not really sure what it is but as long as people tweet about it, it must be cool. So, you are fan of that show “Walking dead” but you have never really understood how those who are dead could be actually alive. When Hollywood gives final declaration of urban phenomena, we don’t question but accept like the fiction has always been the inspiration pattern for science to dig more.
From “28 days later” via “Resident evil” to the “Darkness fall”, the world is digesting the idea of zombie apocalypse. Among all things which we are taking into the consideration as a potential threat to the global security, the zombie attack seems like a good joke but still there are many scientists who believe it is not an absolute brainless thought. This is a scenario what could be really possible if science makes a deadly puzzle with microbes and instead of curing old disease, produce a new one, Chimera baby, hybrid, zombie virus.
The National Geographic made a documentary “The Truth Behind Zombies” and has tried to explain the possibilities of human made Zombie virus. In last 10 years, the movie industry is obsessed with zombies and it goes so far that they make romantic comedies about zombies and their never ending love stories.Story market is producing more and more but the last custom, the watching public, always asks for more blood and more fear in their veins. After the decades of werewolves and vampires, the zombies bring fresh adrenaline and observations what if or what when happens.
There is no science ground for dead to become alive with any kind of virus and that element of movies will be always covered with rational logic of denial. However, not all what mystic zombie virus makes to targeted people is out of reality.Maybe it is not named as zombie virus, but virus of Rabies is very close to the fictioned microbe which turns dead into walking dead with cannibalistic tendencies.
Jonathan D. Dinman, PhD, Professor in the Department of Cell Biology and Molecular Genetics at the University of Maryland states the following:“I think that the Zombie Virus already exists (almost): Rabies. Infection is nearly 100 percent lethal, i.e. it turns you into the walking dead (for a while at least), and it causes you to change your behavior by reprogramming you to bite other people to spread the infection. Now if only it kept the corpse walking around.Essentially, the rabies virus would need to be slightly altered, or would have to evolve, in a way to keep people kicking and screaming for their next victim rather than killing them off just a few days after symptoms occur.Rabies has to incubate inside the body before showing signs of infection, which includes anxiety, confusion, hallucinations,paralysis, agitation, hyper salivation, difficulty swallowing and hydrophobia — fear of water”
The Rabies is known as very deadly virus when it is out of control. It is unbelievable that the world is still fighting to defeat this illness in spite of all medical progress and scientific achievements. This virus is out of our league as it looks like now. We can prevent it but if we are a bit later than it is allowed to be, the patient is sick and ready to bite to spread an infection.The real zombie apocalypse with rabies is not so colorful as it is shown in the movie blockbusters, but it is not far away from exotic killing.
The fact is not to find the virus which could be similar to our imagined zombie virus but to make new one from those what are in offer. What does it mean? Biotechnology works the best when we need it and if the mankind doesn’t start to follow the line of Malthusian Theory, the Mother Nature or the corporations, if we believe to the conspiracy background, will do the rest of the job. How?Making the Hollywood scenario alive, producing a new killer, right from the laboratory, direct to the first overpopulated street. The genetic monster will be ready to harvest and the world will turn into the last knowing legend. The brain eating bug must have the attributes of all highly skilled viruses or bacterias. The Hybrid of Zombism what could be potentially made and unleashed could be the intelligent offspring of Ebola(fast killer, molecular shark), Influenza( airborne attacker) Rabies (no face, no name, no brain), Virus Variola Maior(no immunity at all) and Superbug (bacteria has no fear from antibiotics).This is just a primar list, the second could involve many other pathogens what are qualitatively and quantitatively effect in delivering death in the worst way. The mixing match must be the right one because according to the virologists, unrelated viruses do not hybridize in nature and under the microbiological pressure they possible can share genetic information but it is also scientifically unheard of for two radically different viruses to exchange genetic codes or strains through the process of reassortment or recombination.
Samita Andreansky,a virologist at the University of Miami’s Miller School of Medicine in Florida claims that it is possible but not so easy to “invent” the Zombie bug so easy, even in the high-tech laboratories and by fully professionals:”Sure, I could imagine a scenario where you mix rabies with a flu virus to get airborne transmission, a measles virus to get personality changes, the encephalitis virus to cook your brain with fever’—and thus increase aggression even further—’and throw in the ebola virus to cause you to bleed from your guts. Combine all these things, and you’ll [get] something like a zombie virus.But [nature] doesn’t allow all of these things to happen at the same time. … You’d most likely get a dead virus.”
You don’t need a dead virus, you need a virus which will make walking dead. There were so many tabloid information about the secret government program of zombie virus known as LQP-79, so called a “mental virus infection” that came out from the 79th attempt at developing a “Lysergic Quinine Protein”with intention to create mind control substance. This is proven as a hoax but it doesn’t erase the fears of people being infected by some zombie virus or anything which would cause the global madness. The brain attackers are not only viruses or super bacterias but can only be parasites like toxoplasmosa gondii if they stop being controlled and human friendly, based on good healthy system. Then, it is a real problem of dealing with neurotoxins, stem neurogenesis and nanorobots. Don’t forget that scientists created a nano-cyborg,inserting a tiny silicone chip to a virus.
The science is nothing without technology and in the united project of dark biotechnology, they can invent the unstoppable micro killing machine. The zombie apocalypse will be just one of the consequences but actually the reality can offer us worse horror of any which Hollywood Industry came out with. This is not anymore about zombies and zombie virus, this is about the micro world in Pandora box which is ready to be feed. In the world where people kill people for pleasure, the final mission of microbe will be to clean the Earth from parasites, humans.

Hi grｅat blog! Does running a bⅼog simiⅼar to this require a massive amount work?
I’ve very little understanding of cоding but І ѡas hoping to
staгt mｙ own blog soon. Anyways, shoսld you hɑvе any ideas or tips

Howdy would you mіnd sharing which blog plаtform you’re
working with? I’m going to start my own Ƅl᧐g
in the near futurｅ but I’m having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most bⅼogs and
I’m looking for somethіng comрletely unique.
P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
